NOVA Interview with Sally Ride: Watch an uncut interview conducted at NASA in 1984.
(FYI. Sally Ride was a feminist. Was the first US woman to fly into space. Was part of the first astronaut class to accept women. Attended Stanford. Passed away last year in July from cancer and left behind her Sally Ride Sciences-a group committed to STEM education for young girls and left behind her partner Tam.)

Congratulations! This month, Dr. Ellen Ochoa, a four-time astronaut and the first Latina to go to space, launched into the next era of her stellar career. She became the first Hispanic and second female director of NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC).

Women earned only 18% of all Computer Science degrees and made up less than 25% of the workers in engineering- and computer-related fields in 2009. These statistics stand in stark contrast to the gains they have achieved in law, medicine, and other areas of the workforce.  While this dearth of women in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields is often attributed to lack of innate ability or desire on the part of women, the director of the Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford, sociology professor Shelley Correll, sees this explanation as incomplete.  And she offers a competing one: stereotypes.

Female engineers — despite their stubbornly small numbers in all industries — increasingly have a big impact on the vehicles and safety features that Detroit is offering. Yet of the estimated 28,000 engineers working in automotive fields who are members of SAE International, only 1,500 or 5% are women. The group, formerly known as the Society of Automotive Engineers, has more than 138,000 members.

Congresswoman Gwen Moore, “With more women than ever before serving in the 113th U.S. Congress, Women’s History Month can be a time to reflect on the women who inspired so many of us to join public service, and on those who have shattered g…lass ceilings in other fields such as science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Whether they were fighting for equal rights and equal pay in the workplace, marching for voting rights or serving as the only woman in their field, this month we pause to pay tribute to the many heroines of women’s history.”

Learning ASL? Need help learning ASL? Click here!

Long story short, I bought these for a class I didn’t end up taking. And I tried to price them at half off of what I paid. The bookstore was willing to give me 2 dollars for them both. Uh, no thanks! I spent 100 on each! Yikes.

Anyway, let me know!

1:15AM EST October 3. 2012 - QUANTICO, Va. — It was 10 a.m., and the Marines trudging along the road bordered by thick Virginia woods had been up for seven hours already.
Their uniforms were soaked with sweat, and their faces showed signs of the pain in their muscles. Their day was far from over.
The demanding training was a typical first day in the Marine Corps’ Infantry Officer Course except for one thing: For the first time, two women were part of the class.
"The women are expected to do everything that the men do," says Marine Col. Todd Desgrosseilliers, who commands the organization responsible for basic Marine officer and infantry training. "We haven’t changed anything."
Women have been steadily moving into many ranks previously barred to them, living at forward bases, flying combat aircraft and serving on submarine crews. Women remain barred from the infantry and other combat-arms specialties, but for the first time are being allowed to enter the Marines infantry officer training.
